Jan. 13, 2016

Welcome to Day 3 of the Kidlit411 Birthday Bash Giveaway!

This week's giveaways have followed the path of a creator's journey. 

  • Today's prizes are the next step--ALL ABOUT CRITIQUES: getting impartial feedback of your work. 

    You may enter into any and all of the giveaways. All giveaways end at noon, EST, Jan. 21, 2016. 

    Taking one action (such as commenting on this post) qualifies you for that entry (commenting) for all of the giveaways for the day. If you already follow us on Twitter, in our FB group, or subscribe to our emails, you can take those entries in every giveaway.

    We are lucky to have these giveaways due to the incredible generosity of our kidlit community, so if you happen upon these people elsewhere on the internet, please be sure to thank them!
